The bike that’s being ridden in this video has no suspension, no hydraulic disc brakes, no carbon fiber, and definitely lacks a dropper seat post. Back in the day, it all began with beefed up cruiser bikes being pushed to the top of hill by a bunch of California hippies. They called it “Klunking,” and this was the birth of mountain biking.
Technology has come a long way, but it’s safe to say that these OG’s were having just as much fun playing in the dirt as we are today on our highly engineered rigs. Check out this video of UCLA football player Carl Hulick getting back to his roots, and proving that having fun on the trails is not all about riding the latest and greatest gear.
